Schmidt & Clark, LLP logoBirth Defect Lawyers is a website created by Schmidt & Clark, LLP, a nationally recognized plaintiff’s product liability, birth injury and birth defects law firm.

In an effort to give you some background on our firm and its lawyers, you are placing your confidence in one of the nation’s top trial firms that has a proven track record in birth defect litigation. Michael Schmidt, Managing Partner of Schmidt & Clark, LLP, has been at the forefront of SSRI birth defect litigation since 2006. Specifically, one of Mr. Schmidt’s many Paxil heart defect clients recovered one of the largest confidential Paxil settlements nationwide.

Mr. Schmidt has stated, “Our law firm has represented thousands of victims in pharmaceutical side effect and recall lawsuits. However, as a father of four, drug induced birth defect litigation really strikes home. We intend to passionately represent the children and families affected by prescription and over-the-counter drug manufacturer’s inability to warn the mothers of the potential for birth defects caused by their medications.”

Our lawyers belong to a number of prestigious legal organizations and possess some of the country’s most sought after awards, recognition and distinctions including: Board Certified Personal Injury and Civil Trial Law Attorneys, “Lawyers Of The Year” by LawyersUSA, Best Lawyers in America, Super Lawyers, U.S. News & World Report Best Law Firms, Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell “AV Peer Review Rated” For Ethical Standards and Legal Ability.

Our firm gives considerable time and support to many medical and non-governmental organizations working in partnership with health care centers in underserved regions of the world to promote sustainable cardiac care for children with congenital heart defects as well as other important causes related to the many birth defects caused by dangerous drugs.
